Anybody that’s read your TR’s knows full well that you LIVE for the pool....LOL.
Getting day drunk at the pool in Vegas makes me feel like I am actually still young enough to be day drunk at the pool in Vegas.
I miss the anticipation- having a trip to look forward to; counting down the days.
I won’t return until it’s business as usual, and that could be a long time from now.
I miss the planning of the trip and daydreaming of all the ways I can spend my time in Vegas. There’s so many sights and sounds that make the time in town magical. And when I finally get into town, those months of planning are usually thrown out the window as I say “F it, I’m on vacation!” and just do many things when I want rather than as planned.
I agree with @PressThe5n9, I miss planning the vacation and planning/researching soooo much
Besides that... early morning walks with a mimosa gotten from gambling, making new friends at the VP bar and all of the good food
It's stupid, but I miss Ellis Island's king cut Prime Rib.
I'm another in the "whole package" camp.
There's just a vibe I enjoy. Even if I'm ready to punch a slot (never happened) I just like being there. Many of my preferences match things already listed in this thread. I like experiencing different resorts: rooms, pools, fitness centers. Casino setups, styles, themes when themes were the rage. Trying new restaurants, shows. New slots or the intro of new table games. There's always something new, something to see.
I miss walking on the Strip. I find the solicitors annoying. I roll my eyes and avoid the showgirls and superheroes. I tsk tsk at some of the tourist behaviors I observe. And I cannot wait to go walking LVB when it's like the pre-pandemic experience.
I miss sitting at a poker table, stacking chips, and outplaying the other players.
I miss the dining, the buffets, the steakhouses, the high quality Asian food I can't get in nowhere, RI.
I miss sitting at the sports book bar at the Bellagio, chatting with the bartenders, and hitting quads.
I miss the anticipation of landing in Vegas, the rush to get off the plane, the text from the limo driver, and the anticipation of what could be.
But most of all, I miss the escape.
I miss not having to go to work for a week.
“Would you like a drink sir?”
I’ve busted my butt these last 3.5 months. I need to be cared for too.
Playing limit poker 9-handed, and drinking to excess.
Most of the year, like most, life revolves around obligation/schedules/responsibility.
For a few days out of the year, we get to live like a king/queen/lottery winner, do what we want, when we want, how we want.
Vegas? It's OUR time, our world.
Wake up when we want. Eat what we want. I don't day drink, but if I wanted to? Totally OK. Eat decadently? Totally OK. Spend money on fluff like slots? Go for it. (And I do!) We're frugal the rest of the year, and we still stick to a budget in Vegas, but it's a liberal budget, since we are careful the rest of the year.
When in Vegas, we get to trade our peon shoes a few days of the year to, instead, as Frank said... "Do it my (our) way."
There is no right or wrong answer to the question...
If I have to nail it down to one thing, I miss the energy.
I miss you Vegas!
I miss this stuff, in general.
The vibe, the energy, and the unpredictability of it all is what allures us, I think. We generally go without structured plans, except for maybe a loose desire to get breakfast at Mon Ami or The Henry and knowing we are going to have at least one "nicer" dinner and trying to convince ourselves not to go to Zuma every time!
Definitely the energy. Nothing FEELS like Vegas. The minute we pass over Lake Mead...
I miss the.....
I miss the $5 crap tables
I miss the planning; always picked and purchased tickets for a couple shows; I miss the gourmet dining (one or two special places each trip); I miss looking for and playing BJ w a fun group; I miss the vibe of my favorite places; I miss the anticipation and the packing of all my favorite clothes. I’m so glad I got a trip in this past February. A masked trip does not excite me and so I will wait a bit.
